I plan to buy a set of Lizards from you immediately, beyond that depends on several jobs I am working and when they complete... hopefully before the ten days? I do plan to try to order more things from you as soon as ordering is possible. I will definitely be buying paints from you over time, I love the viscosity, adhesion, and hide on these paints.

My players rue the day I bought "Dragon Mountain". Ever since they give every creature a bit more respect. You never know when the GM will decide that this group is crafty...

I probably would have bought some paint, but at 5 dollar shipping per bottle, I passed on them. I just cannot believe one 4 ounce bottle would raise shipping so much. Maye if the first 4 or so were free and after that a certain cost per bottle, I could see it.

I understand, and thankfully you will have them all in the store after November. I'll start putting $ aside for the caverns, paints, and lizard men. I love your paints and i've got a bunch of minatures that need to be painted as well as the little extras they will allow when painting the caverns and mushrooms and original tiles.

Long Live Dwarven Forge :)

Mine!

Love the Ice Caverns!!

Ice Cavern sets now ordered!!!

(wouldn't have minded paying extra to have them pre-brushed with white...)

Hay Stefan...

After watching the video twice, my son suggested

"Dwarvenice"

instead of

"ice-enite"

I for one stocked up on paint, but I am into painting of late. I think a lot of people just don't know what colors to buy yet. Once the videos come out they should sell a bit better I think.

This was unexpected and I had already committed my toy budget. I had to choose between the new paint colors and the ice.
I assume the paint is not coming from the same factory. Is there a chance you can extend the paint offer?

Man,

I'm a little disappointed I put money into the original water tiles seeing as I'm SURE the clear Dwarvenite will come along to replace them.....

AND that I BEGGED for something like this through 2 KS....

Re:Holy Polar Bears! - We have ICE CAVERNS coming!!!! 5 Months, 1 Week ago  
Stefan, Is it possible to get a listing of what paints we need to match the expertly painted sets? I'm getting 5 sets in grey but all my addons are going to be painted and really hoping to be able to try and match but not sure what all colors I need. I know I need some or both of the blues for the little water bubbles/pools but not sure where colors like schoolbus and earthstone were used. Can we get a breakdown of what colors were used in which pieces?

Thanks!

I wouldn't be disappointed. What's been released in clear dwarvenite thus far is not the water tiles so it's definitely not a sure thing that they will be released in clear down the road...

Besides, I don't know why the water tiles would be made using clear dwarvenite, anyways... you wouldn't want a clear water edge that you would have to paint since there would be no way to paint the transition face where the water meets the rock edge... and a bottom that was clear means you either have to paint the underside or place something underneath. Clear dwarvenite doesn't solve any issues with the current water tiles... if anything, it would cause issues.

I wish they would give us until August 3rd to order. I won't have spare $ this paycheck and i'm pissed about that.

I want the ice stuff, but d i'm going to miss the exclusive because of this.

Jeff and Stefan please please please give us until the 3rd of august I'll be able to order 2 sets.


While I cant be sure about this, I would imagine Jeff & Stefan would want to give us as much time as possible to finalize our orders, however, as this seems (to me at least) to be a last minute afterthough perhaps the factory needs final answers by a set date to meet shipping deadlines.

Who knows exactly how it went down but i'd bet something like this:

Stefan: Hey Factory, can we make these clear waterfall tiles?
Factory: Sure but if you can make other pieces out of that too it would make more economic sense
Stefan: Really now? .... ICE CAVERNS!
Factory: Sure but we need to know in a week if you want to ship these with the rest of your backers orders...

Thus the ensuing short timeframe... again I could be totally off base but it sure dosent feel far off.

When I was in China I brought it up with the factory guys...can you make clear PVC and the answer was yes, but it's a hassle, we have to clean the molds after the regular production and it's a bit more expensive without color, etc...they were not willing to do so without good numbers of orders, etc...then we went out to lunch and did some heavy drinking in a private VIP type place....they promised to try something and send me samples which I eventually got a few weeks ago...we were only going to do 3 basic cavern pieces, also because it's cheaper, but I went and convinced them and us that we should do 10 various pieces:) We only have a short time because production is in full swing now...I approved all metal molds like 3 days ago and they are now cranking them out...we don't want to make any risks to delivery in November so we have to wrap all orders up in 10 days or so...as it is we begged them to let us postpone the numbers of ice caverns, and miniatures until 10 or so more days....ice caverns are selling great! Thanks everyone!

Thank you very much everybody, I hope you love these new creations as much as I


I am sure it is not because of a lack of want I know for myself it just came at the most inconvenient time right in between checks and the closing date is just a few days from my next check which is probably the case for quite a few people. I REAAAAALLY don't want to but am going to have to pass on the original pre-order (even though it pains me very much). My plan now is to save up a huge chunk of money by Novemberish when everything hits retail and I can just drop about 6-7 hundred on the rest of the things I want. I have a feeling with the short time frame that might be the case for other people as well but this is all conjecture. Your products are great and I am sure they will see! Cant wait till fall!

I would also add - based off comments - that people are not sure what paint colours are for what tiles... I know all this was rushed due to current timelines, but it might help to group them into package deals and name them based off the tile groups ie. Lava pack, Water pack, general caverns pack, etc.

I went w 3 sets of ice, 1 of each mini and 1 bottle of each new paint (plus black & white that were released last fall)

The Pokorny paints are absolutely top tier and I cannot recommend them highly enough for you. These pa ints will enable you to replicate the standard cavern, lava, and water paint schemes from the factory.

The value is incredible. These bottles would cost me 2x as much from my local artist supply store.

Thank you stefan & jeff for making them available

See you at Gencon
